ASV 4.0

ASV – Action Script Viewer
A few days, I talked about ASV add-on tools. Lately I also tried ASV and I must say its a ‘must-have’ tool for designers or developers.
Imagine a situation, a client comes back and asks you to make some changes in his site or application you did in past. Now, if you have source files its simple but if you don’t remember where are latest files. Believe me, ASV can help you out here. It can create entire FLA for you through JSFL.
If you have lost some assets or source files from your machine and you only have swf files then ASV can extract following things for you.
– font outlines as TTF
– sound as WAV or MP3
– videos as FLV
– frames/graphics/movieclips/library symbols as SWFs
– bitmaps as JPG/PNG
– ofcourse all ActionScript code (scripts or class scripts)
ASV is very intuitive and user friendly to use, so anyone can easily start using without any problems. I love the timeline thingy and preview feature.
And ofcourse, if you want to study your compiled swf, ASV would help you there also. Peter Hall was able to come up with this idea while he was working in ASV.
Though some guys use ASV for wrong purpose, I would just request, please use the tool for ethically right reason. Its a nice tool made for nice purpose.
